Bill Maher Comes Out Swinging for Teachers

Diane Ravitch's blog

The late night talk show host comedian Bill Maher takes on the hypocrisy of politicians who refuse to pay decent salaries to teachers. 

As his evidence, he cites the story of a teacher in Arizona whose story went viral. 

In one of Maher’s best lines, he quotes Sarah Palin, who said that teachers will get their reward in heaven, but says Maher, the rent’s due here on earth.

Count this as a big victory for the teachers in West Virginia, Oklahoma, and Kentucky, who have gotten the nation’s attention and taught the public a lesson.
